Layout Details

The video above is a replay from our 2020 "virtual" Piedmont Pilgrimage.

Layout Description:

A simple garden railroad that we started about 8 years ago.   We have a mix of steam and diesel, passenger and freight trains.  We enjoy running trains with our son and spending time in the garden.  Each year we add little something and hope to add a water feature soon.
